#1 TIG Tips for Quarantined Parents: The 30-Day LEGO Challenge

By The Intersect Group

Courtesy of Free Homeschool Deals, we recommend trying the 30-day LEGO challenge!

Here are a handful of ways you can use the LEGO challenge calendar at home:

  • Designate a specific time of day to have your children complete the LEGO challenge. If you have standing meetings and need your little ones to be preoccupied, consider setting a LEGO meeting time for your kids. Or, you can make it a part of your new at-home routine and have your kids complete the LEGO challenge each morning after a couple of hours of schooling, after lunch or before dinner.
  • Make it a race. If you have more than one child at home, make the daily LEGO challenge into a race. Who can complete the challenge the quickest? Using the most LEGOs? Using the least? Using only one color?
  • Take a picture. At the end of every day, help your kids document the LEGO challenge by taking a picture. After the challenge is complete, have your kids make a collage or create a LEGO short story using the pictures.
  • Write about it. We’re all at home a lot right now, which is why unique activities like this are good for everyone. Not only does it limit screen time, but it also challenges your children to be creative. At the end of each LEGO challenge day, consider having your kids write about their creation. If they end up creating a short story about the challenge, these daily descriptions can help with the narrative. And if they don’t, it’s still great writing practice.
